Design Lab: Rates of Reaction Prompt: Investigate the factors affecting the rate of reaction. Research Question: How does the concentration of hydrochloric acid affect the rate of reaction of zinc and hydrogen chloride? Hypothesis: The concentration of the catalyst would be a fundamental factor in the reaction. Increasing the concentration of the reactants will increase the frequency of collisions between the two reactants. With an increase in the number of collisions more zinc could be reacted in a short amount of time. Therefore the rate of the reaction is dependent on the concentration of the hydrochloric acid in the reaction. Variables: Independent: - concentration of hydrochloric acid Dependent: - the rate of reaction Controlled: - the amount of hydrochloric acid used - Temperature when the reaction takes place - Temperature of the hydrochloric acid - The physical state of the reagents - Specific molar mass of the reagents - Type of water used (i.e.- distilled) Apparatus: Safety glasses

Unformatted text preview: • 5 test tubes • 500 cm 3 of distilled water • 100 cm 3 of zinc • 500 cm 3 Concentrated Hydrochloric acid (12 mol dm 3 ) • 2 800 cm 3 beaker • 2 graduate cylinder Method: 1. First add 20 cm 3 of concentrated hydrochloric acid into a test tube. 2. Add the 5 cm 3 of zinc into the test tube with the hydrochloric acid. 3. Observe the rate of reaction and time how long it takes for the reaction to finish. 4. Repeat steps 1-3 but now add 10 cm 3 of distilled water into a test tube before the 20 cm 3 of hydrochloric acid id added into the test tube. 5. Repeat steps 1-3 but now add 20 cm 3 of distilled water into a test tube before the 20 cm 3 of hydrochloric acid id added into the test tube. 6. Repeat steps 1-3 but now add 30 cm 3 of distilled water into a test tube before the 20 cm 3 of hydrochloric acid id added into the test tube.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
